Decree of February 6, 2021 No. 120

Citizens with disabilities will be able to receive rehabilitation means and a number of other social support measures not only at the place of permanent registration, but also at the place of stay or actual residence. The changes necessary for this have been introduced into several acts of the Government at once.

The new rules are especially relevant for citizens who have moved to another region, study, work or undergo long-term treatment away from home. Now, in order to obtain the necessary means of rehabilitation, they can apply to the nearest branch of the Social Insurance Fund.

The same procedure is provided for disabled people who need sign language translation services. Work under the new rules will be ensured through the exchange of information through a unified system of interdepartmental interaction.

The new government decree will ensure the implementation of the changes that were made to the law “On social protection of disabled people” in December 2020.
